El Melvin's Mezcal Made Me Do It

Enjoy a spicy kick in your cocktail? Head directly to El Melvin Cocina Mexicana, the lively restaurant that replaced Two Senoritas in downtown Sarasota last November. Made with mezcal, lime and pineapple juices, agave and a chili syrup and served with a chili and salt rim with another chili floating inside, the Melvin’s Mezcal Made Me Do It ($12) is an exceptional blend of hot and sweet, with a substantial smoky undercurrent thanks to the Casamigos mezcal. Great with a pile of warm, salty tortilla chips, it will make your Instagram followers drool, too.
